Aran is a Research Associate at Acme Studios, London, doing research on Acme’s pivotal role in the history of British contemporary art. Aran is a practitioner that lives and works in London. She graduated with a PhD from the University of West of England in 2012 and her thesis was a practical and theoretical exploration of participatory and socially engaged practices.
For a number of years her practice has focused on the interface between art making, social engagement and the exploration of ethnographic methods. While continuing to develop participatory and socially engaged initiatives, her practice also explores processes that engage with the more formal aspect of my practice through methods such as drawing, mark transfer, performance and interventions.
